Greening Schools for Biodiversity 2019
As part of our school’s ALP, selected P5 students participated in the Greening Schools for Biodiversity (GSB) Programme by NParks. The aim of the programme is to encourage student participation in appreciating and supporting local biodiversity. In the first week of July, these students were introduced to native biodiversity, and they learnt basic identification of flora and fauna before conducting a biodiversity audit of our school.
On 15 July, the same group of students attended a customised horticultural session conducted by a horticulturist from NParks. In this session, they learnt more about the flora in our school and designed a planting layout plan. These students will continue to carry out biodiversity audits, green selected parts of the school compound, and create a biodiversity trail for others in the subsequent phases of the programme.
Global Sustainable Development Programme 2019
From 15 to 18 July, our Resilience-1 students participated in the Global Sustainable Development Programme (GSDP) organised by Canberra Primary School. Besides the students from the two Singapore schools, students from South Africa and China also took part in the GSDP. Over these four days, our students made friends with other students from different nationalities as they participated in various learning activities in their groups. The students underwent a challenge-based learning facilitated by Apple and built a model of sustainable city for living, working and playing in the future. They also went on a learning journey to Sustainable Singapore Gallery to enrich their learning and flew kites there as they bonded further with their group mates. Additionally, as part of our bicentennial commemoration, the students went on an Augmented Reality trail at Singapore River. Throughout the group interactions, our students were praised for being very helpful and well-mannered!
Furthermore, students from each school shared on their prides, with our school putting up two skits on our very own NEWater and Changi Airport. The last day of the GSDP ended with a cultural performance from each school. Our Resilience-1 students performed a medley of Singapura, Chan Mali Chan and Rasa Sayang using their ukuleles to showcase Singapore as a multi-cultural and multi-racial society. Their performances were so wonderful that they received many compliments from the staff and students from other schools!
Our students had a great time participating in the GSDP. Through the students’ reflection, they are now more aware of the need to take care of our environment so that it will be sustainable for the future. The students also picked up 21st century competencies such as teamwork, communication skills and respecting and accepting differences. Most of them even commented that they will recommend this programme to their juniors!
18th Elementz Science Project Competition & Exhibition
The Science Department took part in the 18thElementzScience Project Competition & Exhibition organised by Anderson Secondary School. We sent out three teams of five students each, and these selected P5 and P6 students had been working with their teacher mentors on scientific investigative projects since Term 2.
The teams investigated on natural cures to fungal infections, ways to make eco-friendly bioplastics and approaches to improve the quality of recycled papers, and presented their projects to a panel of judges. They did us proud as they achieved a Gold Award, Silver Award and Bronze Award. The awards are a recognition of the depth of investigative design, conciseness of poster display and good oral presentation skills.

The main objectives of this programme are to have more targeted revision for the P6 students based on the main PSLE topics and to help them further improve their grades. The science teachers came together at the start of the year to design topical worksheets on identified topics after analysing the PSLE papers for the past few years. The P6 teachers also work with a selected group of students on certain Thursday afternoons to aid them in their revision.
Training for P4 Monitors (Peer Support Programme)

The students went through activities such as trekking/heritage trails, low and high elements stations, team bonding activities and a campfire segment. All the activities had the aim of providing opportunities for students to display teamwork, leadership and confidence. It also gave them a platform to practise resilience as they overcame challenges. Some of them shared that the high elements stations helped them to overcome their fear of heights. Others highlighted how they worked together to solve some of the problems posed by the low elements/team bonding activities. Indeed, we observed that the students enjoyed themselves as they learnt meaningful experiences from the camp.

We worked hand in hand with NEA to ensure a clean environment towards a livable and sustainable Singapore. With this participation, our school hopes to build social skills of our Eco-Monitors by providing opportunities for them to interact and communicate with members of the public. At the same time, we aim to instill values of responsibility in our Eco-Monitors as users of public spaces and care for others.
